Coinciding with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, International Nurses Day, held on Wednesday 12th May, is a day to celebrate nurses and care staff around the world. Residents and staff at Barchester Hugh Myddelton House care home in Southgate were happy to get involved by hosting a much deserved presentation.
In 2021, the World Health Organisation is seeking to highlight the ways in which nurses are innovating and to explore what the future of nursing could look like. This year, more than ever, we are hugely indebted to all our care staff, and we are incredibly proud to applaud their extraordinary efforts and commitment, on this special day of recognition. International Nurses’ Day is a day to give thanks for the dedication of care givers everywhere, who go above and beyond the call of duty to deliver extraordinary care and support.
Cristina and Dee, nurses at the home, said “We have always wanted to be nurses from a young age and think it’s a great job for young people to consider. You make such a positive effect on other people’s lives. You get to meet amazing people, find out about their amazing life stories and it’s an honour support them.”
